Port of HaminaKotka Ltd and Steveco Oy have jointly constructed a world-class pulp terminal in the new D-area in the western part of the Mussalo Harbor in Kotka, Finland.
The port has invested almost 40 million euros in the infrastructure and the expansion area of approx. 30 hectares.
The inauguration ceremonies of the D-area and the Baltic Sea Pulp Centre located on it took place in early October.
“For the Port of HaminaKotka, this has been a major step into the future together with our long-term partners Steveco and UPM. The investments have enabled the launching of new large-scale operations at the Port of HaminaKotka,” commented Kimmo Naski, CEO of Port of HaminaKotka Ltd.
The first part of the quay of the D-area – quarrying and dredging work of the harbor basin, and the breakwater – are about to be complete.
At a later stage, more quay will be built, and it is also possible to increase the warehousing capacity.
